I left in the 22# spring that I use for my 10mm loads, and the brass literally drops at my feet. Every round has cycled perfectly, so is there any reason I should go to a lighter spring?
That was why I asked, I experienced the same thing with some of the loads I tested from DT and also my handloads, using the 22lb spring in my S&W1006.

It could be tested with the 20lb spring I suppose but I don't know if I'd change the spring and risk having the slide unlock too early, as that may cause unsupported case issues.
